stunetii (90) - Bergen, NORWAY, - AUG 14, 2011
Purchased at systembolaget in Goteborg sometime in the middle of April, 2011. Overall, this is a very robust ale, with good body and lots of flavor. It was a bit more hoppy than what I expected from a blonde. Pours with a deep amber color and a medium-sized off-white head. The lacing is very dense and sticky: the appearance is excellent. The aroma is grassy, fruity, malty and sweet, but a tad bit metallic. The mouth feel is somewhat oily, but a bit too flat I suppose, which is surprising considering the density of the head. The is taste is relatively complex, starting out with a hoppy kick that’s reminiscent of its grassy aroma. The bitterness dissipates a bit during the finish, which bring out some of the sweeter malty notes. A very good blonde, but with a balance that clearly favors hops.

Foffern (1654) - Bodø, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aroma of pale malt, grassy hops, hay and some oranges and diacetyl. Hay in the flavour along with pale malt, grassy hops, sweet corn and other sweet tones in the background. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body and a balanced bitterness. A decent golden ale with a nice hoppy touch.

From a bottle golden with small head. Malty nose and also taste with some herbal notes. Palate is short but still with some herbal notes. Pretty good with food.

Zweite Probe des Oppigårds Sortiment für den heutigen Sommelier Abend. Das nächst stärkere Bier "Golden Ale", welches seine Berechtigung für den Namen aus der tatsächlich goldglänzenden Farbe und dem East Kent Goldings Hopfen schöpft. Die Flasche ähnelt den anderen Oppigårds Flaschen, recht einfaches Etikett. Das Bier ist wie schon erwähnt richtig leuchtend golden und glanzfein. Sieht toll aus. Die Perlung ist recht intensiv, die Schaumentwicklung umso geringer. Genug der optischeen Bewertung, harte Fakten! Die Nase sagt Cascade Hopfen mit frischem Zitronenduft und Grasgeruch. Des Weiteren verspürt man eine leicht karamellige Note vom Karamellmalz.. Ich bin gespannt. Der Antrunk ist sprudelnd aber geschmacklich schmal. Im Körper beginnt sich der Geschmack langsam aufzubauen. Eine Hopfung von der Bittere vergleichbar Jever ist zu spüren. Für ein Craftbier ist es vergleichbar wenig. Danach etablieren sich leicht süßliche karamelltöne, die vom Zitrusaroma untermalt werden. Das Bier hat tatsächlich seinen eigenen Charakter und hebt sich von seinem kleineren Bruder, dem Single Hop Ale deutlich ab. Das karamellmalz sagt mir nicht so zu, passt aber ins "Golden-Ale-Konzept". Ansonsten fehlen mir hier für ein sehr gutes Ale noch ein paar kräftigere Aromen. Vorallem könnte das Bier einen kräftigeren Malzkörper verlangen. Auch wenn es Meckern auf hohem Niveau ist. Man muss die Oppigårds Produkte irgendwie differenzieren.

Taste starts with moderate sweet toasted malt, following is slightly sour grassy and grainy, mouthfeel is astringent and dry, while finish is heavy bitter.

CanCrusher (904) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - MAY 16, 2016
Bottle 0,33L from the local Hoffer store. Clear golden color with small, frothy, white head that doesn’t last long. Aroma is gentle - grassy hops and some herbs. Taste starts sweet and although it became bitter fast, I can’t get rid of this sweetness out of my mouth. Strange feeling, like you’re drinking something sweet and bitter at the same time. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Reminds me of a lager beer.

A clear yellow body with a decently lasting, fluffy white head. Nose has aromas of citrus fruits, mango and mikd resin. Dry taste with a somewhat short and bitter finish. Medium carbonation and light palate. Decent basic blonde ale tgat is quite easy to drink.
